Derrick Lewis vs Chris Daukas: Predictions

After making his UFC debut in 2020, Chris Daukas has been clearing his opponents left, right, and center. He is currently on a 4 win streak. In addition to this, the 32-year-old American has amassed a record of 12 wins to 3 losses in his entire pro-MMA career.

On the contrary, Derrick Lewis is coming of loss at the hands of Ciryl Gane. However, Lewis has a slight advantage of the experience of fighting at a big event. From going the distance to knocking out people, he has done it all.

In addition to his slight lack of experience, Chris’s fights haven’t gone past the second round. According to Chael Sonnen, the lack of main stage experience will put some mental pressure on Daukas. The odds seem to be in Derrick Lewis’s favor.
